Its always hard to see these legends pass. Andy you will always be remembered as a pioneer of the industry. Derek from Skate Daily wrote a good piece on Andy that you should read if you have a chance.

“It is with a heavy heart that we report the untimely death of NYC skateboard legend Andy Kessler. Kessler died last night, Monday, August 10 from cardiac arrest due to an allergic reaction to a wasp sting he sustained on Montauk, Long Island. Kessler was an integral part of graffiti and skate crew The Soul Artists of Zoo York in the late ’70s—considered by some to be New York’s version of the Z-Boys crew from Dogtown in Santa Monica, Calif.”
